that have XF86Config files and none seem to work - I get the out-of-sync
Anyone successfully running XFree86 on the 5000 that can give me a hand?
I'm using Red Hat 6.1.

worked properly if Xconfigurator was told that the monitor was an LCD
at 1024 x 768. Anything else (including 800 x 600, and lower
resolutions as well) produced screen snow and a locked up machine.
The resulting XF86Config file had the pointing device wrong, though
it cited a Microsoft mouse and /dev/mouse. I edited the file by hand
to change it to PS/2 and /dev/psaux, and everything worked.
